Our freshly installed HPDM 4.5 SP1 floods the WAN. After some initial success waking up devices across the WAN I can see the gateway.exe process send as much as 10 Mbps of traffic to the broadcast address of targeted devices. It seems to occur the first time I target devices on several subnets for a wake-up job. After that any WoL-enabled task floods the network.
Is a fix forthcoming for this?

Still unsure what triggers the flooding; my hypothesis was wrong. Once it happens just restarting the gateway and canceling/deleting the jobs doesn't work. All subsequent tasks flood the network unless you delete the entries in C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP Device Manager\Gateway\.task (assuming default installation folder).

we have the same problem
Version is hpdm 4.5 sp3.
For some reason that (we think) depends on the network between server and client the process Gateway.exe starts a loop and flood the network of wol packet.
The only way to stop this is to stop the process in windows task manager.

Now we are investigating on the network because we have other client that work fine.

Are there any news concerning that problem?
We have the same Issue. Wol in the same subnet works fine, in different subnets it floods our WAN and makes us unreachable...
We run Version 4.5.3610.17677
